things done in washington -- supporters are gathering now -- to bring america to the white house and in so doing, basically get the american people to ratify the change that the president would like to see happen on capitol hill. >> yeah. this is one of the lessons he's learned from the obama care battle where he had no outside game. he basically told the left and all the folks who had supported him during the 2008 campaign, sit down, we've got this, we're going to do it through rahm emanuel, legislative wheeling and dealing. that didn't work so great. the other side flooded the capitol with people carrying guns so now he's mobilizing his base to try to get this done. >> and let us hear him mobilize that base. the president speaking at the white house. >> thank you so much. thank you, everybody. please have a seat. thank you. thank you very much. everybody, please have a seat. except you guys. don't sit down. well, good morning, everybody. >> good morning. >> you know, there's been a lot of talk here in washington about the deadlines we're facing on taxes and deficits. these dead

know, america is going down the wrong track, and if we don't do something about it now, if we don't get our country back on the road to growth and prosperity, my 13-year-old son jack, all of our children and our grandchildren won't inherit the same country that we did. there are two philosophies in this race, one that believes in government as the solution, the other belief, my belief, it believes in the individual, it believes in you. while my opponent supports president obama's big government agenda, i'm fighting against the president's failed policies because i believe north dakotans, not washington, ought to be trusted to make decisions about their family, their money and their opportunities. now, i agree -- i grew up in western north dakota, i started a business in north dakota, i served in the best citizens' legislature in the country where we created policies that have made north dakota the envy of the nation. in north dakota we balance our budget. we do it by living within our means and making the decisions today, not tomorrow or next year. that's the north dakota way, and that'

. remember the confetti falling from the skies all over america when it passed? and republicans saying freedom has died tonight. >> it's still roughly two years away from being fully implemented in 2014. i mean, cushing the costs is the critical component of health care. you talk about curbing the cost of health care, you talk about taxation, the corporate tax rate, capital gains tax rate. you know what all of it is? all of it is about can they govern? can they govern? can we be governed? can the people in washington, d.c., in the house and the senate and the president, can they govern? >> they have to. >> well, they have to. they absolutely have to. >> just to make a point for those who thought that the health care reform law was historic, many people -- i actually assume that most of the five people at this table think that it's a shocking thing that america is the most powerful country on earth before the health care law was passed, had a massive number of many, many millions of uninsured people in the country when every other industrialized country has universal coverage. >> right.
there across america who are saying, you know what we really need, we really need people to fight hard night and day to sidetrack secretary of state potential candidate because of some things she said on -- maybe there's people out there. i don't know where they are because i've never met them but do want to know this. like what's their long game, willie? what are they doing? this doesn't help the republican party. it's like mitt romney's dumb press conference the day after libya exploded and the ambassador died. there is a time and place -- there are so many ways to go after susan rice. >> and there are real questions on whether she even has the temperament to be secretary of state. that's a big question in washington, d.c. let me say it again. does susan rice have the temperament to be secretary of state? there are a lot of people, democrats who will tell you privately that just maybe she doesn't. but we're not talking about this. this is a clown show that's going on right now. what is -- >> i love that debate. >> well, the long game is unclear and the short game is even more unclear becau
was a way to sort of show the power, show the middle east that in fact america is still lock step with israel and that there is power in the two of them working in concert. >> oh, i don't know about the word lock step when you talk about president obama and benjamin netanyahu. i think the first thing they could do if they are in lock step is stop yelling at each other. >> they have to put forth a united front at the very least. we understand, i fully am aware of how tenuous that relationship is, but they were able to come together on some sort of agreement, however layered it is we are not sure at this point, that remains to be seen, but in terms of posing a force in front of morsi, they've got to be in concert together, do you agree? >> well, i thought it was interesting that morsi had actually manufactured the cease-fire before secretary of state clinton arrived, but out of just deference to the united states both morsi and benjamin netanyahu waited until secretary of state clinton was there until they announced it, which really meant we didn't have as much power as we have in t
